Every week or so, LTUworld invites someone on the globe to be a #proud2bLithuanian: sole ruler of @proudLithuanian Twitter account.
For seven days or longer, someone will tweet why she or he is #proud2bLithuanian - perhaps because Lithuania is a free nation, or because it has world-class basketball, or perhaps because of our values: dedication, hard work, volunteerism, sacrifice.
For seven days or longer, he or she will be a global focal point for Lithuanians and those interested in the Lithuanian nation as well as in Lithuania itself.
